Building Bridges: Your Community & Labor Report
Produced by Mimi Rosenberg & Ken Nash
Days of Destruction, Days of Revolt
Chris Hedges, Pulitzer Prize winning correspondent set out to look at
those areas in America that have been offered up for exploitation in the
name of profit, progress, and technological advancement, to show what
life looks like in places where the marketplace rules without constraints,
where human beings and the natural world are used and then discarded
to maximize profit â the result, Days of Destruction, Days of Revolt.
Hedges talks about the western plains, where Native Americans were
sacrificed in the race for land and empire. He then travels to the old
manufacturing centers, and the coal fields that fueled the industrial
revolution, but now lie depleted and in decay and then looks at the
slave-like conditions of immigrant farm workers.
Hedge's talks about the people at the bottom of the American economy
and argues that without profound change poverty will deepen and flood
the nation. He then talks reversal and remedy, how to bring people out
in protest, and rebuilding the kind of movements that protect us, such as
Occupy, where a new generation revolted against the corporate state of
by and for the 1%, that bequeathed to us an economic, political, cultural
and environmental catastrophe.
